Not tactical, but PRACTICAL, taking into account:
Value (cost vrs function)
Most EDC'able (legal, sheeple friendly, comfy to carry, etc.)
Overall usefulness
Durablity
Materials (blade, handle)
Maintenence

For me it would have to be my Spyderco Native w/ S30V. Small enough for legality, large enough to git 'er done, and great ergos, and blade material. Tip-up carry is my preference as well. It's easy to open with the hole, and I trust the back lock. Light handle material, and good grip-ability with the textured FRN, plus it just looks cool.:cool: And I got it NIB for only $40 off of ebay!

Outside of my small SAKs, my most practical knife would have to be my Ladybug. It is not scary at all and it is very useful in an office and urban environment. It was a great air travel knife until 9/11. :(

My most practical knife would defiantly have to be me my Victorinox Soldier. I have knives with better steel that cost five times as much but the soldier gets carried quite often due to its overall usefulness and great design.

Probably kitchen knives -

the Victorinox paring knives and the 5" Chicago Cutlery 62S utility/boning knife.

The red plastic handled Victorinox actually sits on my table for general cutting purposes.

Otherwise it's my EDC on my person knives - a SAK when away from the house
or a Kershaw/Ken Onion Leek (in black "boron" - actually tungsten DLC) at home.

I guess I'd have to say Swiss Army Knife, too. Small, reasonable to carry. The one that I never carry (but use all the time at home) is the classic one with tweezers, toothpick, two blades, corkscrew, punch, and the can opener/screwdrivers combo. Not much bulkier than a Case Canoe and has most the tools I could need for most basic things. A close second would be the Leatherman Micra, which I also don't carry, but sits in a drawer at my office and I use it on a daily basis, probably. Funny how I never carry the useful knives! Duh!

My REKAT Hobbit Fang is my "home utility" knife, and is the one that sees the mose use of all my blades, so I guess that it's also my most "practical".

Glad you like that Fang. I kind of regret selling it!

Guess my most practical is my Victorinox Hiker. I use every tool on it pretty frequently, except the awl.

My EDC Case slimline trapper. Just a good everyday utility knife, and it feels good in the pocket.

With all knives that I have actually only Wenger (don't remember it's name, looks like Vic Tinker) does most of work.
Of course, I always have another "real" knife on me :D for different purposes, but Wenger (or Vic for others) still stays more practical.
